Airfare discount feeds.

Airfare Watchdog is a site that recently was praised in the New York Times for the fact that it had human eyes culling the offers. I found that the site had a great number of good airfare offers, but they tended to go by very quickly, so they offered a syn feed to keep up.

I added the Airfare Watchdog feed for my hometown of Boston, and I decided I'd add feeds for some of the most popular cities. Voilà.

I started a number of newsfeeds for people who are searching for travel from local airports via Airfare Watchdog, and found a couple that had already been started by others.

Ask the Little Bald Bastard

  Here's a sample post from my advice column, Ask the Little Bald Bastard:

Dear Little Bald Bastard,
  Whats with that outfit?
- judge mental

Dear judge mental,
  My wife says I dress like a homeless man getting drunk on his way to church. Since "Surly Internet Columnist" currently pays about as much as drinking Mad Dog out of a paper-bag-covered bottle at 9 am on a Sunday, I'd say it's appropriate.
